Deviant portraiture free of charge

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 30, 2012, 9:46 AM
:bulletpurple: UPDATE: Deviant portraiture will be running on monthly basis from now on. Those of you that wish for a portrait by me AND have the 5 critiques rule accomplished, please also COMMENT on this journal, since some favs are 9 months old (:



Dear deviants,

this is a permanent event I'm running since April 2012 on (more-less) weekly basis. I pick one deviant (following the rules of this journal) and I make a portrait for them that is free of charge. If you are interested to join this project, read the rules below (:


:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:

RULES / HOW TO PARTICIPATE?


:bulletblue:  :+fav: this journal

:bulletblue: write at least 5 critiques (on other artist's work (any artist), latest one at most one month old). If you don't know how to write a critique, here is DeviantArt help: FAQ What is the Critique Feature and how do I use it

:bulletblue: :+devwatch: me if you haven't

:bulletblue: if you use :facebook:, please support my page (if you don't use FB, ignore this step)

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:

Please note that:

:bulletred:Winners of every week's round will receive digital version of their portrait in high resolution uploaded by me here on DA. I will notify you with link to the deviation, you can download it, print it, use for personal purposes such as FB profile picture etc, but when re-uploading please credit me. I forbid use of my works for commercial purposes.

:bulletred:If you want the original of your portrait, NOTE ME! I will send it via mail if you cover shipping + packing expenses. I ship worldwide and shipping + packing cost of this size of artwork is usually up to 5.5€ / 7$ and it takes 3-5 working days to ship within Europe Union, 5-10 working days USA, Canada. Standard size of this kind of portrait is usually 21 x 21 cm or 21 x 29 cm and paper used is 230g smooth artist watercolor paper .

:bulletred:If you don't claim the original portrait to be shipped to you within 2 weeks from publishing it here on DA, I will suit myself to do whatever I decide with the painting, probably give it to my friends or put in online auction.

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:


I will randomly pick one of you every week and notify you (:

Everyone can write critiques. Premium members can request critiques on their work.

You don't need a premium membership to write critiques, you only need one to ask for them :)

I wrote all of mine and I have never had a premium membership :D Perhaps it depends on the specific image you tried to write it on? If you want to find works you can write on, just browse the Critiquable section of dA, that's where I find people who want some suggestions :)

Instead of weekly, why not monthly?  Then you'll have time for other stuff as well. You're doing great deed, I'm sure it's understandable...

Adding to my last comment: I've completed the 5 different critiques, and I'm sure to make more in the future! Good idea to get others to help people out. I've never done an actual "critique" before, but it was a good experience and helps make one look critically at their own work as well. c:
So here's my complete entry to this contest/drawing!
Keep up the amazing work, hun!

This is a wonderful idea, Hun! I'll most definetly enter in! I love your work; your my favorite next to another amazing watercolor based Deviant, Agnes-Cecile!
Since I don't usually write "critiques" I'll get started on going back and writting some constructivism for fellow deviants.
Thank you for this chance and keep up the amazing work! <3

It took me about 2 hours to find some critqueable pieces to write about, but I actually surprised myself by doing so! I found some great pieces :D

Any way here's in the best hope that you'll consider me sometime. I absolutely adore your artwork, you've inspired me to test out watercolours for part of a portfolio I'm currently putting together. Keep up the good work!
